What is an MA in Curating? This program typically provides students with the knowledge and skills they need to curate a variety of different types of art or design objects. Students will be exposed to objects that may belong to public or private collections. Some programs will take a global perspective on the role of the curator while others might focus more on a theoretical and historical approach. Nearly all programs will take a close look at how the arts influences communities and cultures, key developments in art and the issues that are most pertinent to a curatorial environment.

After completing this program, graduates should have the critical skills necessary to work with contemporary and/or historic collections. Many students will enjoy associating with professionals and experts in the field of curation, as well as a number of contemporary artists, and may have access to special collections in the school or related libraries.

The costs of participating in this type of program can vary a great deal. This is particularly true for schools that are established across international borders. To get specific tuition information, prospective students should contact their preferred schools.

Graduates may look for positions with art, cultural or heritage organizations, galleries and museums, exhibition groups, media, marketing and advertising agencies, and community groups or education. Individuals who graduate with this master’s degree may choose to become curators of a public museum or accept a position researching historic pieces of work. Other job opportunities might include the creation of displays and exhibits or writing press releases, dealing with budgeting or developing marketing strategies.

Curatorial practice entails the selection and representation of cultural objects, ideas, and artifacts by organising and promoting art projects and exhibitions. At its core, this practice is rooted in the understanding and inculcation of values associated with social and cultural history, and a sensitivity to multiple forms of spectatorship. At Srishti Manipal we consider the curatorial practice to be not only about the exhibition, selection, and display but an endeavor towards reflecting cultural practices that address contemporary social concerns. The MA in Curatorial Practice is founded on the premise that there is no separation between practice and theory in curatorial work. Curators operate across a vast ecology of contexts and spaces - from the museum to the commercial gallery, to the artist-led space, to the festival, to the lab, to new creative ventures and academic projects. The role of the curator often blends in with that of the researcher, the artist, the publisher, the activist, the archivist, and the creative entrepreneur. The program foregrounds an inquiry-based approach to learning, where students can explore and develop personal discourse, artistic visions, and ideas through their chosen lines of inquiry, navigating through frames of thought nurtured at Srishti Manipal. The students of the MA in Curatorial Practice will acquire the criticality, skills, and flexibility to work in the ever-changing context of the contemporary art world and cultural production. They will develop an awareness and understanding of international and national socio-cultural and political discourses in the field. -
